Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

It is a dark and stormy day here in Sugar Land. I guess it's perfect for Halloween.

I'm so behind in blogging, and well, life in general. Sara nominated me for the Liebster award, so that post is coming up! Thank you so much, by the way. I'm not ignoring it; just busy!

Sophia has been changing and growing and learning so much. She observes and remembers EVERYTHING! I caught her doing some of the cutest things that she learned just from watching mommy and daddy:

1 | She touches the lid/pump of hand soap and rubs her hands together as if she's washing her hands. She does the same with lotion.

2 | She holds the phone up to her ear and starts having a conversation.

3 | She tries to hang up her towels after bath time. She also tries to help hang up clothes in the closet.

4 | She takes tissues out of the box and wipes her mouth/nose. SO cute...but who taught her to put it back in the box?!

5 | She picks up her dirty diaper...AND THROWS IT IN THE TRASH HERSELF! Whaaat?!? She also brings us a diaper and the box of wipes if she needs her diaper changed. (This isn't an every day occurrence, but I am still so proud!) 

6 | She also takes the diaper rash ointment and puts it back in it's spot.

7 | She opens my purse because she knows I always have Ritz crackers in there.

8 | She helps me close the baby gate at the top of the stairs.

9 | She takes daddy's slippers and put them back with the rest of his shoes. She knows where everything in the house belongs. EVERYTHING. Except keys.

10 | My sister has to wear a cap when she goes outside. Sophia hands her her cap whenever it is time to leave the house.

She's pretty much a sponge and soaks up everything. I guess that means we need to be so careful about what we say and do around her! Eeek!

I'll leave you with some photos of my little tin man!

My Little Crazy

Sophia is a CRAZY little girl.

Her new thing is to cover her mouth with both hands, double over with laughter, and then throw her whole body backwards while cracking up.

Mid laugh...

It's hilarious! My new goal in life is to capture that laugh on video. 

Oh and Sophia has an obsession with my sister's old duck slippers. She puts them on herself & somehow manages to walk around in them. Look at that sass!

Oh Hello!

So it's been a million years since I last posted. Life has been a little crazy around here lately. Teething, a minor ear infection, and all THREE of us with the flu has really drained all my energy.

It's been a long week & this is the first night Sophia has slept in her crib since getting sick, so it's going to be a short post.

Here's some recent photos of my little So!

Sophia and I on my birthday! I'm definitely starting to feel old.

Cheering on the Dallas Cowboys with daddy on Football Sundays. Anyone that knows me well knows that I always wanted to be a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. Since I'm way past that point in my life, Sophia's DCC training starts now :)

Celebrating the first day of October with her little babyGap "Boo" dress! I actually bought that dress the second it was added to their website & waited until it was socially acceptable to put it on her. I'm dying over her tiny little pigtails. I can't wait until she legit grows more hair though!

Watering plants outside with grandpa.

Representing our great state in her Texas tee. "You can still dream big even if you're little." How cute is that?!

And modeling her Circus Peanut outfit.

In other news, today the hubs and I celebrated four years since we started dating and three years since he proposed. It's been a crazy ride, and our lives have changed so much since our carefree days in good ole' Waco, Texas!

Next up is a trip to Dewberry Farms for some pumpkin patch fun (and an early glimpse at the Christmas tree farm!!!!!) and some family pictures for our Christmas card. Anything to coordinate some cute outfits, right?

Have a good weekend!
